Becket Family of Services came to Massachusetts in 2012 to fill a gap in the service delivery system by providing supports to individuals with significant challenging behaviors related to Autism Spectrum Disorders, mental health disorders, intellectual and developmental disorders, and problem sexual behaviors. A history of trauma and related symptoms was, and continues to be, a common thread among the individuals we serve. Becket relies on evidenced-based theories of intervention to design individualized treatment plans and utilizes a quantitative system to measure progress. Evidence-based strategies that we use include Applied Behavior Analysis and Positive Behavior Supports, the Good Lives Model, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Trauma Informed Care.
Supports are provided in 15 different residential programs across the Commonwealth. Programs are clustered in three distinct regions of the state: Lakeville, Freetown, Bourne, and Attleboro in the southeast; Agawam, Southwick, Westfield, and Wilbraham in western Massachusetts, and Fitchburg, Westminster, Leominster, Winchendon, Templeton, and Leicester serving north central Massachusetts. Each program has a dedicated Program Manager and a customized staffing pattern designed to meet the unique needs of the individuals supported at the facility. A Clinician supports all of the programs and is an integral part of the programming and structure.
The overarching goals of Massachusetts Adult programs include:
